Watch CBS News Videos Online
Here is a CBS video report on President Obama nearing the decision to reverse himself and order military tribunal trials for 9/11 Mastermind Khalid Sheikh Muhammed and several other high profile terrorists.
This decision would be a stunning reversal for Obama, whose Administration has made such a huge deal about breaking from the Bush Administration and insisting it is morally superior to try them in civilian courts.
The bottom line is that Obama has no choice. He sees that he will not have the support he needs in Congress or among the American people to do what he really wants to do.
The reporter in the video nailed it when she said this is a "failure" for Obama. This is what Republicans and the vast majority of the American People have been saying all along.
